my birthday!!!

and I don't look a day over fifty :)

big thanks to mom and dad who probably had a lot more fun making me than raising me.

Big thanks to my Raquel, Adriahna and Cheyenne for putting up with me for so many years and loving me even though I am an old, cranky curmudgeon.

And thanks to Jesus, who keeps telling me how much he loves us all, even though I struggle to believe and trust.

Congratulations, Rev, hope you enjoy or have enjoyed the celebrations.

The following Jack Handy quip comes to mind for some reason:

"If I ever opened a trampoline store, I don't think I'd call it Trampo-Land, because you might think it was a store for tramps, which is not the impression we are trying to convey with our store. On the other hand, we would not prohibit tramps from browsing, or testing the trampolines, unless a tramp's gyrations seemed to be getting out of control."

Happy birthday.

I love that 'thing' behind you in the pic.

The Rev said...

thanks David, great quip

The "thing" behind me is a sculpture I made of rusted metal that was found near my old house in Pomona.

Hey John, happy birthday! Is this taken with a new camera? The quality of the picture is very good. I hope the beard doesn't get too much food caught in it.
